on your selection of a Mercury propulsion package featuring
the SmartCraft DTS (Digital Throttle & Shift) control system,
and welcome to a select family of boaters and fishermen.
As a discerning boat owner, we share your passion for the
water and we created the SmartCraft DTS control system
with you in mind. Because your absolute delight is our
priority, we ask that you first take a few minutes to orient
yourself with the basic operating procedure for DTS along
with all of the exciting new features at your fingertips before
you take command of your vessel.
This quick reference guide is designed to get you started by
providing an overview of some of the most important
functions of the DTS system and how they work.
We recommend you keep it somewhere handy in your boat.
It is important to note that it should be used in addition to
your operator’s manual, which we recommend you thoroughly
review prior to your first trip out on the water.
This guide also provides a brief description of each DTS feature
and how you might use it to help tailor your DTS control system
operation to the way you operate your boat. Please note that
some of the features described in this guide are only available
if your boat is rigged for a specific application.
You'll also find a section briefly describing how Mercury's
Engine Guardian protection system works to help maximize
your time on the water.
